How To Make Lemon Panna Cotta

How to make lemon panna cotta

To make the simple dessert, start by blooming the gelatin by sprinkling it into a small bowl and pouring over water.

You can just use cold water, there’s no need to use boiling or warmed water to bloom the gelatin.

Gelatin

Stir gelatin mixture to help it dissolve, then set it aside to bloom while you see to your creamy and lemon ingredients.

Then, get to mixing the creamy ingredients by pouring the cream, milk and sugar into a small saucepan.

Mixing creamy ingredients

You can use your cream, milk and sugar or sweetener of choice, depending on your dietary requirements, what you find at local grocery stores and what you usually include in your sweet treats.

For the lemons, use 1 to 2 lemons, depending on how lemony a flavor you’re after.

Mixing lemon zest and juice into lemon panna cotta

Grate the lemon rind or zest using a microplane grater or vegetable peeler over the creamy ingredients and then cut the lemon or lemons in half and squeeze the juice over a fine-mesh strainer to catch the lemon pips.

Place the saucepan on the stove top over medium heat and then cook until steaming, removing from the heat just before the creamy mixture comes up to boiling point.

Whisk the bloomed gelatin into the creamy, lemon mixture, then allow to cool to room temperature. You can pass the mixture through a sieve if you’d like a super smooth panna cotta, but we like the bits of lemon peel, so leave it as is.

Ramekins with dessert

Pour the panna cotta mixture into individual ramekins, serving bowls, custard cups or glasses, then pop into the fridge for a few hours, or overnight, to set.

Enjoy on it’s own or topped with fresh fruits, berry sauce or even an indulgent swirl of whipped cream.
